Dear Sir,

Can you clarify the following error message?

In[3]:= f[i_] := x == i

In[5]:= FindRoot[f[1], {x, 0}]

FindRoot::frnum: Function {False} is not a length 1 list of
numbers at {x} = {0.}.

Out[5]=FindRoot[f[1], {x, 0}]


This is a simplified version of an error message I got in a more
difficult case. I hope that I have not made a stupid mistake.

Thank you very much

Pieter-Jan De Smet
